Prevent Ice Damage with a De-Icer

We're in the thick of the freezing temps and winter weather but it's not too late to protect your water investments this winter! If you're worried about ice forming around your dock, keep the water moving with a dock de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks wants to help you protect the investments you care so much about. From your dock to your lift to your boat, it's important to keep the water moving around your dock. It's especially important if it's a colder than normal winter or you're in a shallow cove. Learn some of the reasons you should install a de-icer around your dock today!


1) Erase Worry About Your Dock and Lift This Winter

If you have a de-icer you don't have to worry about the water freezing by your dock. The de-icer will keep the water moving, therefore, preventing the ice from becoming solid. This can also help prevent you from having to go down to your dock in the freezing temperatures and checking on your dock all the time. When it's that cold outside you should be able to stay in the warmth of your home.

2) Keep Your Investments in Good Condition

You spend a lot of money on your water toys - protect what you've worked so hard for with a de-icer. This can help protect your dock, boat, and lift by lowering the chance of ice to form and causing damage to your property.

3) Help Prevent Damage to Your Property

Ice can cause dock, lift, and/or boat damage in a number of ways. If your dock has ice all around it, it is unable to move like it naturally does. This can actually cause your dock lines to snap due to excessive tension. Your dock floats can also be damaged from ice forming against or hitting the tubs. Ice can cause your boat lift to malfunction and in some cases leave your boat to fall into the water.


Now that you know a few of the most common benefits of a de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to get yours installed. Contact our Lake of the Ozarks boat lift company and we'll get your de-icer ready to be installed and start protecting your dock this winter. Give us a call today at 573-348-5073.

Tips for Attending a Boat Show

Boat shows are fun events the entire family can enjoy. The winter boat shows get us all excited about the upcoming boating season and is just what we all need to get us through the cold months of winter! Many boat shows are well attended by both boating enthusiasts and those planning to purchase a boat. Summerset Boat Lifts is here to help point out a few tips to keep in mind as you make your way to the upcoming boat shows.


Boat Show Tips

If you are in the market for a new boat, there are some things to keep in mind as you're making your way through the exhibits at this year's boat shows. Here are a few of our top tips:

Think About Financing - If you're serious about buying a boat, it's important that you have an idea of how you will pay for it. While some people may have the cash to buy a boat, most will need to get financing secured. You might want to consider getting a pre-approval before you attend any boat shows. By doing so, you'll better be able to set a budget for how much you can afford - and you won't be tempted to fall in love with a boat out of your price range.

Do Your Homework - Before stepping foot into the boat show, do some research. You want to have some idea of what you're looking for or you can get easily overwhelmed. Make a list of questions that you want to ask the dealers. Be sure to have a budget in mind before you start your search as well.

Talk with the Dealers - Rather than just checking out the exhibits yourself, be sure to talk with the dealers. Ask the list of questions you prepared ahead of time. Not only are you looking for the best values in boating, but you also want to make sure you're working with a reputable and knowledgeable dealer. Customer service is very important when it comes to such a big investment as a boat.

Check Out the Show Guide - Many boat shows will have a list of all their exhibitors and vendors available prior to the show. Take a look at those and make a list of who's booths you want to be sure to stop by. With so much going on at these events, you can easily get distracted and miss something you wanted to check out.
